Old Adrian

Though clearly not the man he once used to be
Old Adrian looks well for one  of eighty three
He still enjoys a few beers at the local pub
The five times best and fairest with the local football club
In his prime the best footballer for miles around
In the  nineteen fifty six grand final the best player on ground
When he inspired the team to a  premiership flag
Though of his football achievements he never does brag
Five years ago he buried his wife his beloved Eileen
Their only child John died in Vietnam when he had just turned nineteen
As a noble young hero in a war far away
Life is  not all laughter as Adrian does say
A likeable person and friendly to meet
And for one of his age quite lively on his feet.
